Tiled roofs seldom tell such a vivid story as they do in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Stories of war. Stories of reconstruction. The war of the early 1990s destroyed most of the tiled roofs of this jewel of the Adriatic. Not enigmatic like Venice but inviting, though both are definitely charming in distinct ways.
I wrote earlier about the charms of this Adriatic town loaded with history from older times and recent times. Its emblematic roofs catch your eye from up high as you approach the town from the airport.
It is quite a view even if this photo is not the best as it was taken from a moving bus. Walking along the old walls that surround the town is one of the best things to do to see the town from a very unique angle that most cities do not offer. From there, the tiled roofs caught my eye in a different way. This post will share some of those roofs, the new and old (most are new, repairs from the most recent war) as I keep pondering the stories the town could tell us… Enjoy them!
